Media rss media group alternatives scheme
One of the problems here is that within the media group there isn't an attribute with associated scheme that describes what these additional media:content items are. Somehow they are all the same thing (because they are in the same media group), but what distinguishes them? The <media:category> tag can help. It can be a sub-element of channel, item, media:group and media:content.
On this page, we'll present the specification, which is under development. However, we need to be able to flag:
- Main content
- Additional versions (e.g. for access)
- Audio version
- Audio description
- Supplementary materials
- Commentary or other documents
- Archival versions (such as high bitrate / native / uncompressed versions of the media, for archival purposes)
It would also be good to be able to specify versions that are meant for specific devices, such as phones etc.
